Ken Roczen Takes On The ‘1 Hour Challenge’ With Canyon Bikes
For those of you that aren’t up to scratch with the engine powered bike world, German racer Ken Roczen is a Motocross and Supercross legend, most recently taking the 250cc Supercross title. With a little help from Canyon, Ken sees how much fun he can pack into 1 hour aboard their e-bike, the Spectral:ON…
You may think that a moto rider would be satisfied with the bikes their used to shredding, but even Moto legends need their EMTB fix, that’s why we sent a Spectral:ON to Ken, with the challenge to escape on the bike for an hour into the hills of San Clemente, California.
The result? 2 laps, over 3000ft of descending and a lot of fun had. For someone who spends his life on petrol powered bikes, Ken was surprised by the capabilities of the new Shimano EP8 motor and battery life.
“I was blown away by the battery life of the new Shimano battery. You can get in so much riding on just one charge!” – Ken
